Share This!

Happy Easter weekend all! I hope the Easter bunny will be delivering lots of eggs, chocolate, candy, and not too many jelly beans! (Unless those are your jam.)

This week, we’re going to learn some Disney secrets (some that even I didn’t know), learn what’s going to be the new “it” thing from Disney Parks (apparently), and so much more! Let’s dive right into the fun, shall we?

In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

Want to learn more from those who create some of the attractions we all know and love. This article takes an in-depth look and shares thoughts from these individuals themselves.

I read strange things for you all and then pass them along to you to read. This news story is certainly one of the more interesting ones I’ve read. Learn what happened when a rat bit a man at the Magic Kingdom.

Usually when I read these “secrets” articles, I don’t learn anything. This one… “7 Secrets About Disney Rides Direct From the Imagineers Who Designed Them“, I absolutely learned something and it’s about the upcoming Incredicoaster. (Plus a few other interesting tidbits.)

Bob Iger recently spoke about his rise at the company, as well as the constantly changing world of entertainment. Take a look at the video.

We have a new timepiece sponsor for the Disney Parks – Citizen.

Paul Frees is a legend. See what Disney (as well as other) characters he voiced. Which were your favorites?

Rose gold what? Now, it seems like the “it” thing moving forward may be millennial pink. (As a technical millennial, I’m not a fan of this color pink, but that’s just me….I guess I’m going to be in the minority.) If you want one, these ears and spirit jerseys will be available in April.

Wait, I may have spoken too soon. Apparently rose gold is still a thing, as Disneyland recent introduced the rose gold macaron.

We cannot wait for Avengers: Infinity War. They hype train is pretty intense and got even more so with these new movie posters. Which one do you like the best?

Disney’s newest movie…themed around…Grad Nite? Ok….

Looks like Batuu (you know, the planet where Guests will be visiting as part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) will be featured in a new Star Wars book. Not sure if it’s just a cursory mention or if we’ll actually get to “see” it, but interesting nonetheless.

Universal Orlando’s newest resort, Aventura Hotel will feature a fantastic new rooftop bar with views of the resort’s theme parks called Bar 17 Bistro.
